This ministry involves set up and clean up for the masses.
Responsibilities include setting up for both Liturgy of the Word and Liturgy of the Eucharist which means preparing all the books, vessels, offertory, and incense when appropriate. The sacristan also assists the presider with whatever details/duties he needs done. The sacristan will check to make sure the altar servers are ready and in place as well as making sure the assigned Readers and key Extraordinary Ministers are present and ready to serve.
Depending on the number of sacristans assigned to a particular mass, you may serve once or twice a month or more infrequently. Generally, the time commitment is a half-hour before and a half-hour after your mass.
If you are interested in serving in this ministry, please contact Deacon Charles Iner at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 770-957-5441 x 201.
